BBC BRIEF
KADEN SOWELS
MY IDEA
• I wrote a story four years ago with
a few friends from school. We
never fully finished the story, but I
have always wanted to continue
it. We came up with the idea
during a power outage in our
town, when only a few plug
sockets stopped working. Since
our phone chargers were plugged
into these certain sockets we
started joking about a conspiracy
where the outage was caused by
secret agents from another
country and then decided to write
a story about it. We called it
‘Powerless’
2
THE FULL
STORY (or at
least the full
idea)
• THE BEGINNING: The heroes are sat in their
rooms, phones on charge. The lights flash for
just a moment, and their phones stop
charging. They call each other to see what
happened, and slowly begin to figure out it has
happened to the entire country. They take it
upon themselves to solve the mystery.
• THE MIDDLE: The heroes figure out what
caused the outage: an opposing country that
aims to collapse the government and the
economy. The heroes set out to stop this
collapse, getting themselves mixed up in
something they definitely should not.
• THE END: There are two ways it could end.
OPTION ONE: The heroes save the country, but
they do not get credit and they stay as the
unsung heroes of the country
OPTION TWO: The heroes fail to stop the
collapse, living with the guilt for the rest of their
lives.

of the two. He has certain knowledges.

others, again, Charlie being the one exception.

and athletic, and he took gymnastics for four years when he was 15.
• He is very rude to the opposing side, and even sometimes to people on his side. He is
very creative when it comes to his job, and is also very cold towards everyone, unless
being caring would benefit him.
• ESTJ
• ADDITIONAL NOTES: Drug addict, alcoholic

What makes my idea
different?
Similarities to other
shows
• Though my idea is similar to other programmes and
movies, there are certain, big elements that are completely
different to existing products.
• I believe the power outage trope mixed with another
country being responsible has not been done before.
There have been programmes where issues happen and
another country is responsible, but I believe none of them
have used a power outage as the issue.
• Whilst my idea is similar to the popular Netflix show
Stranger Things, there are many different aspects, such as
a spy infiltrating the heroes or the fact that there is no big
monster for the heroes to fight at the end.
• My idea also has nothing to do with the supernatural and it
is not a horror, like Stranger Things is.
11
Target
Audience
• I believe for this sort of programme, the target
audience would be somewhere between 16 and
25, if not slightly older. To work this out I have
looked into other similar programmes that relate to
my idea and figured out that the target audience for
those products have been around the same ages
for each different programme.
• Using this information I believe that my target
audience will also be the same as these similar
products because it is something they enjoy
watching.
• I also believe that my target audience may relate to
some of the main characters, as I aim to, in a way,
modernise their personalities, forming them around
the personalities of people I know (whilst trying not
to explicitly use a friends personality without
permission in the story) 12
What channel
would it be
shown on and
when
• I believe a programme or movie like this would most
likely be on BBC3, as many programmes and movies
on there are targeted towards 16-25 year olds. It
could be on other channels but I believe the main one
would be BBC3.
• I think a product like this would be best to air at some
point during 4pm and 7pm, as this is when most
school/college students get home, and is when most
workers arrive home as well, so they would have time
to watch it rather than having to record it and watch it
later in the evening.
• I also believe that this programme would last
anywhere between 40-60 minutes, as it gives the
characters time to work through the issue. Many TV
shows have an issue set out for each different
episode, but for this programme, each episode would
be them continuously working through the same
problem, as the issue would not be able to be solved
in 40 minutes.
• A programme like this would most likely only have
one season, but the amount of episodes would be
determined by how much the target audience enjoyed
the first few episodes, as with any tv show.
